Just an Update

If you've been following my blog, then you've noticed my little car is only 3 days away from officially leaving California. You've probably also noticed it's been a while since a real post has come through.

Things have been crazy busy here. We've been packing for what seems like forever. My husband has been driving all over creation looking for tires to fit his large work truck, getting cars serviced, tires rotated, running final jobs, trying to find extra drivers for our vehicles and doing who knows what else before we have to leave.

I've been doing very important things like getting my hair cut and colored, getting a pedicure, buying snacks for the trip, making the final bank run, eye dr. and ortho appointments, dr. appointments and spending hours on the phone arranging things like health insurance, auto insurance, home insurance, utilities, cancelling current utilities & phone, and saying goodbye to friends and family.

So far we've had a nice dinner with my mom and stepdad, a bbq-rib cookoff with friends and a dinner out with my brother. Tomorrow we're spending some time with my aunt and little cousin, and Friday morning I'm meeting another friend for coffee. Friday night we'll be hosting pizza at our house and having some friends and family over for a final send off. Whew-busy, busy!

But we are very excited to finally have the big day arrive. I wanted to say thanks to all of you who keep checking to see if anything new has been posted by me. I promise real soon I'll be back in the swing of things. I have a wonderful beach day to share, a homeschool convention trip to dish about and I also was going to share why I've been reading about gluten-free diets. Not to mention the new school year coming up and what I've got planned out for curriculum.

Be back soon~

Looking forward to your posts! I often post gluten-free recipes because I feel so much better when I avoid gluten! You'll have to check out my chocolate-waffle turtle cookies next week. :-) ANYWAY, we used to go to homeschool conventions, so all that stuff is fun and exciting for me! :-)

Thanks, ladies, for your good wishes! We have made it to our first stop in San Diego-all safe & sound! We'll be resting tomorrow & then off again.
